Explore some of the songs, themes and prolific songwriters of Scotland, including one of its most famous sons, Robert Burns.
Scottish music is known all over the world. We are going to explore some of the songs, some of the themes, and some of the prolific song writers who have spread the beauty of Scotland and its people across the globe. We will learn about Robert Burns and how the messages within his songs are remembered over 200 years after his death. We will also look at songs of love, freedom, protest, emigration, children's songs, and music hall songs and look at the very close links between the songs of Scotland and Ireland. Every class will be a concert and everyone who comes will be part of that concert, so bring your voice, your ears and whatever instrument you want. As they say in Scotland, we'll be 'gi'en it laldy'!
